Sallyís grandparents came to Dakota 100 years ago and settled on land that had been the territory of Tillieís people.  These two unlikely friends and colleagues share stories of how they met, began collaborating and what each has discovered about the otherís cultural herstory in the process.  Along the way they explore the oppressive impact of sexism, Christianity, homesteading and historical bias.
 

The presenters trace how a legacy of friendship and cooperation between First Nations and settlers was shattered by racism and treaty violations and then move to create the conditions for rebuilding friendship networks.  The roles of women and children are highlighted.

Audience workshop participation is through group activities, role playing, listening skill activities and stories which are utilized to explore the feelings and attitudes that emerge when dealing with these issues.
